This month, Stephen is attempting to walk an incredible 1 million steps in support of Tŷ Hafan – all of them to and from the summit of south Wales’ highest mountain, Pen-y-Fan!

“I chose this challenge as I really wanted to enhance the difficulty level to help support this amazing charity,” says Stephen, who is from Brecon.

“First I played with the idea of 500,000 steps given my other commitments with work, my daughter’s football team and my football, training with my partner and my generally busy schedule. However, I didn’t feel this would hold the gravitas to generate the kind of funding I was hoping to raise for the charity which does such amazing work.

“I visited Tŷ Hafan to have a walk around a few months ago and was taken back by how the facility was so full of positivity and astounded by the volunteer work that makes Tŷ Hafan what it is today. This was inspiration for me to step up to the challenge to maximise the donations.”

For a step to count towards this challenge, it has to be to and over the summit of Pen-y-Fan. To reach one million steps, that’s the equivalent of walking up and down Pen-y-Fan 110 times in 31 days!

‘To save my body and hopefully avoid injury and possibly sanity I will be taking various routes around the Brecon Beacon, always passing over the summit to ensure the steps count,” Stephen tells us.

To make this even more challenge – yes, it can get even more challenging! – and to help inspire more people to donate, Stephen’s step challenge is going to include four Ten-y-Fan challenges, walking up and down Pen-y-Fan four times in 24 hours.


‘Please support me on this challenge and this amazing charity which does such important work supporting the children and their families through the most difficult times of their lives,’ he says.

“Walking 1 million steps, especially with the added difficulty of completing four Ten-y-Fan challenges within a month, is both physically demanding and mentally challenging. This is my commitment to supporting Tŷ Hafan and the important work they do for children and their families is truly commendable.”

Stephen has already raised more than £10,000 and has been pledged an amazing sponsorship of £8,000, mostly from BBI where he works as a Sales Director.
